    ST3042 plates

    I have been printing a few plates including the brim on my 3D press. A problem I am now having is that the image from the previous plates are transferring to the silicone and then transferring to the next plate. Would a sheet of plain paper on top of the sublimation paper help?

    Yes, I tend to use a grease proof sheet, but paper will work just as well.

    The reason it is happening is because there is too much ink, or the weight of the paper is not heavy enough for vacuum printing. Its nothing to worry about though. If you want to get rid of it then simply turn the temp up to 190 and let it burn off over 10-15 minutes. However it happens with mine and I just ignore it.
